Chicago, Jan. 88.—The grain and pro
vision markets were as a rule dull to-day, the
prices of most of the articles failing to show
material chance in either direction. The
tondga wheat markets were quoted quiet and
steidv and eastern markets were without en
couragement to buyers, light re
ceipts and a small increase in
shipping demand for higher grades
belnc the only sustaining features.
Opening sales were a shade over yesterday's
close, and the bears, sn-iogthat further im
provement would subject them to deliver on
calls sold last evening at near the market,
commenced hammering prices and secured
a decline of )^c, hopiug thereby to increase
the S'.TlitiLC by longs, but the latter were not
i to offer any considerable amount,
and, finding the market sharply resisted
their effurts to depress values, many of the
6horts commenced buying on the long side,
causing a rally of l*<}L%c., which, however,
was not sustained, prices closing
under the highest figures of the day and :-, §
J£c hisher than yesterday. May wheat
opened with a Arm feeling at 86J4C, advanc
ing to 80X<-' and closing at 80)£. Corn was
'11 good shipping demand, ojiening at 41, L4C
for May and closing *g*c higher than yester
day's closing, ilay products were quiet dur
ing the day at prices practically unchanged,

There was an unusual lack of Interesting
features in tin-day's markets. Wheat opened
Ji£c Signet fur February and May. The bulls,
conscious of strong support from the coun
try et large, were confident, and the con
tinued cold weather and light receipts helped
out their side at the market considerable.
Early in the Jay advices from the northwest
stated that tbe Northwestern Milting associa
tion bad advanced buyibg prices 2o, which
added eiira strength to the market here, Jfc
being add'd to the May option. The expres
sion, "Somebody is under this wheat," was
frequently heard, and apparently the bulls
had Ilic best of the light. But the bears were
not idle, makint: determined efforts to force
down prices, altaoagb the resistance of the
market oir-icd to rep.-ated efforts to main
lain :i severe dt-preeiation, aud the fact that
Drices were well sustained without the as-
lislance of factors of an uuusual char
acter, w.-s r.itlier regarded as a
proof of Increaaed strength based un intrin
sic values. Local operators seemed about
equally divided as tn opinions of the future,

lurried ron!rury to their expectations, the

Chicago, Jan. 22.—There was only a nom
inal and routine activity at tbe banks to-lay
and as long as this extremely cold weather
hangs on nothing better can be looked for.
People do business at this temperature simply
because they are compelled, not because they
want to. There is, however, no perceptible
weakening at any point, but pure and una
dulterated dullness is the predominant char
acteristic of the situation. New York exchange
was quoted at pir, with a iieht outside de
mand. Orders for currency shipments were
j few and small and the receipts the same.
The bank clearings were $0,600,000 against
[Special Telegram to the Globe.T
New York, Jan. 22.—There was rather
more activity In the stock market to-day
than yesterday, although the situation still
continues dull. The opening was weak all
around. !*%w York Central fell off %,
Northwestern %, St. Paul % and Lake Shore
"3. This weakness was followed later by a
slight advance, which was maintained to tbe
close. Contrary to expectation, Western
Union was the strongest in the list and was
well supported by the grangers, which came
prominently to the fore about midday, it Is
a matter of surprise to many that stocks
should hold their own so firmly in the face
of tbe present railroad war, but the explana
tion is to be found in Jay GoaJd. Just at
present he is helped along somewhat by the
large short interest out. The present pro
gramme, as far as it can be ascertained
from external indications, is to foree shorts
into cover, put up prices with a whoop, sell
out near the top, and gracefully retire with
the protits. It remains to bi seen whether'
the scheme can he worked. President
Mitchell, or the St. Paul, ba* gone west. The
next dividend on that stock has not yet been
agreed upon, but it is already conceded that
it will not he Zy t ner cent, semi-annually as
heretofore, and it msy be passed altogether.
In Philadelphia the agents of the Pennsyl
vania road are offering to take westbound
freight 5c per 103 pounds less than other
lines. The policy of Lackawanna now is to
fight for its share of the freight and coal
hwslBUSSi and make special rates with ship
pers. The New York Central will probably
meet the cut on emigrant rates made by tbe
Pennsylvania and West Snore, as it is the
policy of the Centrul to follow the
West Shore in any rate lt might make. The
officials of the Utter road are now In consul
tation ss to what action they should take to
meet reductions made by other competing
lines aud altogether the situ .tion is otfe of
gr-at eotnplication and vexation to general
managers and serious loss to slock bonier*.
Toe eiuisraut sale from iiirnburg to Chi
cago has been cut to $5, which is t'2 cheaper
than yesterday's figure*. There are many
believers in a bet'er state of things later on,
though tne outlook fur a rather uninterest
ing market for the next thirty days Is rather
encouraging Just now. The final dealings
developed no new feattir-. The market
dragged its slow length along und closed
rather firm, with final quota'lous showing a
slight change for the better. 4

THE SIX TEAR STATESMEN,
fSpecial Teleeram to the Globe. |
Washington', Jan. 88.—The senatorial
fights in various parts of the country and
their effect upon political matters, continue
to be a subject of a good deal of attention.
The greatest interest has centered in the
New York fight. Now tbat lt is over, the
friends of President Arthur are claiming it
as a victory for him. There seems to be no
doubt that his friends, and probably the pres
ident himself, were glad to see Mr. Morton
beaten. Tlic-re was a feeling tbat the course
of Morton in permitting the use of hi3 name
and influence in the early part of the contest
against President Arthur was, to say the
least, a bad taste. Some people call it po
litical treachery. Perhaps it was. If so, it
was quite a good thing that Mr. Morton was
beaten. It is always whispered that Mr.
Blhine took a lively interest in the Mortou
campaign, and the result is that the Arthur
people are the more Joyful over the result.
The quiet ending of the contest in Rhode
Island, almost before it began, in the selec
tion of Mr. Chace, the present member of
the house, for the position so long filled by
Senator Anthony, was one wbich gave great
satisfaction here. Mr. C'haoe Is very quiet,
very intelligent and an entirely unassuming
Quaker of perhaps fifty vears of age. He is
not at all ashamed of bis Quaker faith,
though not making a special parade. He
talks with the tbees and tbous peculiar to the
Quakers of whom we were accustomed to
hear long ago. It is really interesting to hear
Mr. Chace and Ben Butterworth iu personal
conversation. They use unadorned, whst
the Quakers term the plain language, and io
all tbe simplicity of the fathers, and
grandfathers, too, for that matter.
Mr. Chace wears a peculiarly cut coat, a
sort -of cross between a swallow tail
and the sort usually worn by Episcopal cler
gymen, a standing collar, and a broad
brimmed slouch hat. Sometimes he ex
changes the latter for a plug, which makes
him look even taller and more slender, for
he Is probably tbe slimmest man in congress
physically. Mentally, however, be is very
vigorous. It is really amusing to see him in
the house when the tariff comes up. He is
not demonstrative, but he is vigilant. He
watches every movement of tbe enemy, and
notes every statement made. When his turn
comes he calmly takes uo the various argu
ments offered and dissects them. Then be
waits aud mildly *A**grflta, in his peaceful,
Quaker way, that perhaps tbe gentleman who
made the speech which he has Just men
tioned would like to say something in re
sponse. He lays a theoretical chip
on his Quaker shoulder and dares
the free traders to knock it
off, but they seldom do. It takes a brave
man, one well grounded In the theory of
free trade, to he willing to tackle Cbaee. or
else it takes one who does not know him. He
is not demonstrative in his way*, does not
bellow and toss his victim* about on hi*
boras, sn to speak, but his quiet, careful
concise arguments, backed with fact* and
tiirurcs with which his r.itlier diminutive head
seem* to be crammed, are tbe dread of free
ItaaV ra. Ike prediction was made in these
columns befi re tl.e death of Mr. Anthony
that Mr. Chace would bit that genllemau's
Won! comes from Florida that Senator
Call lias been renominated by acclamation,

Ibe congratulations tendered Senator Vest
ou the day follonlog his rct.om I nation, as be
sat in bis seat iu the senate, showed tbat his
return ted by everybody s* a Very
-•..p on the part of the Missourians.
From Arkansas word comes that the fight
seem* to be rather in favor of Dunn, at
prcseut a member of the house. It would be
really refreshing to see some man like Dunn
get into tbe scuate.for he has not the »llghte*t
hesitation In speaking out bis mind about
railroads or other monopolistic crime*. He
bas been one of the most persistent, thouicb
not over zealous supporters of measures In
lbs !. *B*S forfeiting uoearned r*ilro*d lands.
He would be a valuable assistant to tbe bow
legged senator from Nebraska, Mr. Van
Wyck. who never lets an opportunity to
• hack the corporations and monopolies es
The genersl sentiment regarding the re
turn of Mr. Teller 10 the senate Is one ot
quiet satisfaction. He wss a fairly-able sen
ator when in that body before, and now tbat
he hs* bad several years' experience in tbe
iuterior department and in tbe cabinet, he
will be a more able and more valuable mem
ber of thatb^dy.
In I llnoii a fight centers of great interest.
Each p.rty Is hopeful, but the Republicans
tie pos*es*i-<i of more confidence now
than the'.r opponents. They claim that the
. are that they will elect Logan and
if tbey d.-> not the Democrats will not be able
to elect anybody, aud that after the adjourn

rumors now crop out. It is believed, how
ever, that Mr. Bayard ha* failed in bis de
mand to be assigned to the treasury depart
ment and tbat be will not be a member of
tbe cabinet in any position. The absence of
a day or two from the city of Senator Gar
land leaves an impression among ids friends
that be bas again gone to Albany. Others
say be has gone to his own state of Arkan
sas. The chances are, however, that he has
gone to see the president elect. One rumor
Is that the president is averse to giving the
department of justice to a southern man and
that he has scut for Garland to offer bim the
department of state. It i3 somewhat irrita
ting to a number of senators that the presi
dent elect has not asked their views touching
bis cabinet. Xo one seems to have any idea
of his intentions, aud, if any senator has the
confidence of the new president, he holds
his counsel welL So far as is now known,
it is not the intention of Mr. Cleveland to

MRS. STAJILET MATTHEWS DEAD.
WAsno|jPTos, Jan. 22.—Mrs. Mary A.
Matthews,; wife of Stanley Matthews, asso

members of the court are all deeply affected,
both on account of our regard for the de
ceased and our sympathy for our brother in
affliction. We shall attend in a body such
funeral ceremonies as may take place in this
city, and as a further testimony of the seuse

The Oregon Central land forfeiture bill, the
senate amendments to which were concurred
in by the house to-day, is the first forfeiture
bill to pass both houses of the present con
gress. It is substantially the same as the
bill originally prepared by the Astoria cham
ber of commerce, with the additional amend
ment, offered in the house by Mr. George,
with the purpose of protecting settlers. It
forfeits all unearned lands between Forest
Grove and Astoria.
At the secret session of the Woman Suf
frage association to-day, Mrs. Blake, chair
man of the committee on plan of work, made
a report, which was adopted, jjreoom men ding
tbat the women of the several states labor
with their legislatures for the pas
sage of suffrage laws, aud mark
every member antagonizing measures iu
favnr of women in order to oppose them
The work before congress for a sixteenth
amendment is to be continued. The women
in the several states are also requested to op-
pose the re-election of senators and repre
sentatives voting against woman suffrage.
Tbe vice presidents of the association were
requested to obtain, if possible, the passage
of resolutions by their respective state legis
latures recommending to congress the adop
tion of a sixteenth amendment. The ques
tion 08municipal suffrage was discussed at
some length. It was stated tbat school suf
frage had been granted iu twelve states. Tue
resolution which caused warm discussion at
yesterday's public session was Informally
laid aside until the next aonual meeting.
At the public meeting this afternoon, ad
dresees were made bv Mrs I'-'gs, of Kansas,
Giara B. Colby, of Nebraska, atra Dr. Alice

RKOAKDINO STEAM APPLIANCFS.
The board of supervising inspectors of
steam vessels began its snnual session in
this city to-day. After the transaction of
routine business, the board discussed tbe bill
before congress providing for the repeal of
section 4,4i'J, revised statutes, concerning
the use of steam registers on boilers. The
same qurstlou was submitted to tne board at
the last session and disapproved because it
wa* believed the effect of the repeal of tbe
statute would be to compel the use of ccrtal n
steam registering gauges on every steam
boat. The same View of the matter was
taken to-day. A proposition Is p-nding be
fore the board to amend the rule prohibiting
passengers from entering the pilot bouses of
steamers while under wav so the rule shall
apply only during the hours between sunset
and sunrise. A test was msde in the pres
ence of tbe board of the value ot hand gren
